Abstract

An on-site investigation at Lompoc, California, has established that the fossilized baleen whale found there in diatomite was not buried while “standing on its tail,” but is tilted because the enclosing diatomite unit is tilted. However, current slow-and-gradual uniformitarian models for diatomite deposition and whale fossilization cannot explain this Lompoc whale fossil in diatomite. Only a local catastrophe involving volcanic activity, a post-Flood event within the biblical framework of earth history, is consistent with all the evidence that demonstrates the whale was catastrophically buried in the diatomite.
